I think the main flaw with your blog is that it's so impersonal. Take some lessons from bigfootkit and others and at least bother to write a line or 2 about what makes the bands & recordings special to you. There's hundreds of blogs like yours out there and a fancy wrapper doesn't really make it more interresting. Credits & sources would also be a good idea to include..Strappado wrote:having fun here?
I'd like to think that the Corroseum would never sell out with ads and donations like many other forums seem to all too easily succumb to. If Dan ever were to come into financial problems which would jeopardize the website, I'm sure that other members (myself included) would chip in for the hosting fees, etc. to keep the place running.Cochino wrote:I hadn't seen this and I don't know if the Strappado guy still logs in, but my problem is that "donate" button that's there. You can see no such thing here on The Corroseum and I think that asking for donations when most of the content comes from elsewhere sucks. I don't have a problem with any of my uploads being shared in other sites, and I've also shared things that I found elsewhere. The problem for me is somebody making at least 1 buck out of it.

Don't compare me with the Thrashmageddon assholes please. They charge money to even make it possible to access the download forums, or you have to upload a bunch of stuff they can lay there hands on and then kick you out and ban the shit out of you.Avenger wrote: The sad part about that blog is that the situation listed above isn’t even the problem. It’s sheer greed ala Trashmagaydon in which the guy running the place seems to think that they deserve to make profit on material that they don’t own the copyrights for.
Nah just to add extra space, and some dollars a month to the file-hosting sites. So I can't say I earn anything on running the blog, more of a loss of 10$ a month but that's okey with me! just like to trade and enjoy great music!.Cochino wrote:Besides, blogspots sites don't have to pay a host so they don't even have that reason to ask for donations.
